Synopsis:
Meet Lina Inverse -- the powerful, but petitely developed sorcery genius, and Gourry Gabriev -- the brawny but brain-dead swordsman who's her partner. Join this dynamic duo as they travel the land looking for fame and fortune... along the way you'll also meet the mysterious Zelgadis and "Miss Justice" herself, Princess Amelia. Chased by bandits, bounty hunters, and insane priests, Lina and the gang are worried about only one thing: where to get enough to eat!
 
Review:
See where it all began -- the first TV season of the Slayers! This series has Lina and company crossing paths with a man named Rezo the Red Priest. You get a healthy dose of action and adventure. While there are some small hints at romance, they are barely enough to register on scale. The characters are extremely well-developed and are just hysterical. They are also voiced perfectly by well-known seiyuus like Megumi Hayashibara (Faye Valentine in "Cowboy Bebop") and Hikaru Midorikawa (Heero Yuy in "Gundam Wing"). I don't know much about the Slayers movies, but I didn't need to watch them to follow what was happening.
 
The art and animation are admittedly a little inferior compared to what I've seen of the other series. Still, I highly recommed Slayers -- especially if you're looking for a good mix of fantasy, comedy, and lots of food! My best friend really got me hooked on this and I'm looking forward to getting the next two seasons.
 
Miscellanies:
I haven't seen the dubbed version, but from what I've heard, it's not bad. The only thing that surprises me is the same guy who plays "Brock" on Pokemon plays Gourry.
